    OFF TOPIC- Yahoo Viruses

    About a month ago my girlfriend started using yahoo''s messenger tool.

    I run virus check every month and just found a virus on one of my laptops, the one she uses.

    I'm in I.T. and I've told her never to hit links she's unfamiliar with, never open emails from her bank suggesting she go to a site and update information even it it looks like the bank page, never open those joke email etc... She said she hadn't and gave me crap for suggesting she'd forgotten..lol..you just can't win...lol.

    In doing a search and cleaning my laptop, I found out this virus has variations but is spread through yahoo messenger.

    If I can get a virus like this, I figure many of you most probably have one too.

    Its called Sohanat and it can shut down your regedit and task manager functions.

    Just an FYI
